Phew. No - but the hurt paws is slightly upsetting. I'd say a 2 out of 10 - not too bad.

Yes, many scenes with flies (including close-ups of the faces and eyes) and the sound of flies buzzing is heard often throughout the movie. Other bugs not really present.

However, a little boy's fingers are caught painfully in a slammed window. No bones are broken, but the parents point out how weird it was that none of his fingers were broken from that.

In the very beginning, they play the murder of the precious family. You don’t see a kid die. But you see him point the gun at each family member, hear shots, and know they are dead.

Yes, a character gets trapped in a walkin closet and begins to panic. They are eventually helped and (aside from being very distressed) are otherwise unharmed.

Very little but there is a scene where a lot of blood seeps from the walls. Other scenes where characters get injured involve blood but its mostly mild.
